It depends Early stages, IP, I open raise with high pp, AK, AQ. Set mine with a call for low to mid pp; if I don't flop the set, I fold (set mining is no longer profitable in later stages). OOP, I attempt a blind steal but only if I have a worthy hand, e.g. pp, sc, etc.
I think that patience is key. Don't let what the other players are doing or not doing affect your play. Remember, it only takes one double up (your QQ vs. an donk shove of Ace rag) to get you in the game. Good luck
